Samsung Galaxy S II hits 3 million sales, without even reaching U.S. Samsung has announced today that the Galaxy S II is the hottest smartphone in the world, hitting 3 million units sold in just 55 days.
Making the number much more impressive is that fact that the device has not even reached U.S. shores yet, with expected launch date sometime in August.

At 3 million in 55 days, the sales eclipse the original Galaxy's 85 days for the milestone.

The phone is also Samsung's fastest selling phone, ever.

When the device hits the U.S., it will sell as the Samsung Function on Verizon, the Within on Sprint and the Attain on AT&T. There is no word on a T-Mobile release, yet.

Samsung has lofty expectations for 10 million sales of the Galaxy S II by the end of the year.

Don't know why it's taking them forever to release here in the States. Samsung must want to go head to head with the iPhone 5.

I don't mean any offense to India or anything...but WTF? I know they are a viable market, but the US market is a lot hungrier for pointless tech like this. Two months on the market with no release, I hope HTC or Motorola release some new model on the same weekend as Samsung releases this thing, thus killing any US sales they might have gotten.
